This U.S. debut from bestselling UK novelist Martina Cole delves into the seedy London underground as it relates the trials and tribulations of a gangster on the rise. With raw prose and sheer intensity in both its realism and theme, Cole's novel is a compelling story that presents its narrator with the challenge to perform it with the same power. Happily, narrator Nicola Duffett delivers a strong performance that is as compelling and layered as the work itself. Duffett is up to the task here, offering realistic characters that are hard-edged and so believable they're scary. Duffett's rough British dialect is perfectly suited to the story and never sounds forced or manufactured, even when portraying the toughest male characters. L.B.
